Apple Campus 2

Apple's under construction Campus 2 will become the company's new headquarters in 2017

  • 2.8 million sq ft of office space
  • 176-acre campus
  • Separate on-site R&D facilities
  • 100,000 sq ft. fitness centre
  • Underground 1000-seat “Apple Theater” auditorium
  • Will run on 100% renewable energy
  • Apple hired architects Foster+Partners for the project
  • Expected move in date: 2017

First announced by Steve Jobs in 2006, Apple kicked off construction on its new 176-acre “Campus 2” in late 2013 and expects to move in around 12,000 of its employees when the project is complete in early 2017. The campus located approximately one mile east of its current headquarters in Cupertino, California is also often referred to as the Apple “Spaceship” due to the appearance of the site’s main circular building.

Apple currently plans to wrap up construction by late 2016, and CEO Tim Cook confirmed earlier this year that the company is still on track to move into the new 2.8 million sq ft location by early next year. Apple is also expected to host future press events and product unveilings at its new Apple Theatre auditorium located on the campus.

[UPDATE: Cupertino mayor Barry Chang is refuting the claims made by The Guardian, saying that he never said the words quoted in the article: “I was shocked and dismayed to see a recent article quoting me with words I never used and describing situations that never happened,” he said in a statement on the Cupertino city website.]

Cupertino mayor Barry Chang has accused Apple of ‘abusing’ its home city by failing to contribute to much-needed public projects, and claims that he was ‘surrounded’ by security and escorted off the premises when he tried to discuss traffic congestion.

Apple is not willing to pay a dime. They’re making profit, and they should share the responsibility for our city, but they won’t. They abuse us.

However, the Guardian notes that Apple paid $9.2M in city taxes in 2012/13 …

Apple today shared new photos from within the currently under construction Campus 2 (via Mashable), as well as previously unknown details about the site set to become the company’s new headquarters when construction completes early next year. 

The most impressive shots and most of the new details surround the on-site auditorium separate from the main building, where the company will indeed hold future press events. That was expected, but Mashable seems to have gotten the inside scoop from Apple and notes the company is calling the auditorium “Theatre” internally and that it will be “the new stage where Apple will publicly debut its products to the media and, ultimately, the world.”
